My Students

Middle school students are vibrant and ever-changing. They have their feet firmly planted in both childhood and their teenage futures at the same time.

Each day they attempt to figure out who they are, what they love, and who they are working to become.

My students represent a wide socioeconomic range and there is a disparity in access to learning materials and opportunities; yet they ALL also want the same thing ~ to learn and grow to be their best!

My Project

My students love to discuss ideas! The ideas that get them talking most, often come from the exciting new books they read. Our class library is an easily accessible way to expose students to diverse thinking as they nurture their already existing love of reading.

Adding these Mock Newbery titles to our class bookshelf will ignite thinking and conversation in our classroom!

These books will teach empathy. They will give students the chance to solve mysteries and wonder about history and current world events. These books will change the way students view themselves, others, and their world. Your generous donation will help my students participate in our Mock Newbery challenge. Reading these new books, and voting to select one winning title, will inspire my thinkers to read more to know and do more!
